Proposed Ohio marijuana bill topic of Friday workshop



Published: Wed, January 1, 2014 @ 4:29 a.m.

LOWELLVILLE

The potential impact of House Joint Resolution 6, Ohio’s proposed marijuana legislation that could allow people 21 or older to purchase and consume marijuana, will be the topic of a workshop Friday at Lowellville High School.

It will be led by Brenda Heidinger, from the Mahoning County Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board, and Angela McClellan, from the Coalition for a Drug-Free Mahoning County. They will discuss what passage of the bill could mean for the state’s employers, law enforcement, businesses, students and schools. The workshop is open to the public. It will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the high school’s band room, and will last about one hour.

I see no one was invited to explain the dangers of prohibition of drugs. Prohibition costs taxpayers tens of billions of dollars every year, yet 40 years and some 40 million arrests later, drugs are cheaper, more potent and far more widely used. Like alcohol, there should be legalization, control, and rehab offered to abusers. Ruining peoples' lives by incarceration of those who do nothing but use marijuana is not the answer.
After 40 years and over a trillion dollars, the percent of drug use is (still about 1.4%) is virtually the same. Due to the War on Drugs

What about Bong Resolution 6, not everyone likes joints, some prefer bongs.

Not ever using drugs, I'm not sure if there is a way, like alcohol (breathalyzer test) to test some one if they are "high". If it needs a blood test, that would take some testing that would not be able to be done for a traffic stop (roadside)
